I had the pleasure of visiting the Art & Interiors pop-up at White Coco in Chelsea created by mother and daughter team Bee Osborn & Hettie Reatchlous.
Bee Osborn is a successful Interior Designer & Hettie Reatchlous is the founder of Art Untamed - a new Art Consultancy company in London. Bee Osborn has created beautiful interiors in her signature style for more than a decade and runs a successful interior design service for commercial & private clients. Her home in the Cotswolds which she recently renovated is a prime example of her vision to completely transform spaces whilst keeping the integrity of a building.
Bee's daughter Hettie has worked for renowned art-dealer Michael Goedhuis for most of her career before she launched her art consultancy Art Untamed in 2020. Her business works to match clients and up and coming contemporary artists worldwide with the aim is to take the fuss out of sourcing. Hettie supports her clients from initial consultation to installation and her team of in-house artists can create bespoke works to suit any client's brief.
Explore Art Untamed's exclusive selection of in-house artists.
The pop-up launched on the 24th September at White Coco (227 King’s Road, Chelsea) and runs until the end of December. In the shop, there is a mélange of art selected by Art Untamed and homeware by Osborn Interiors. The stock is being replenished frequently so the shelves are always full of beautiful homeware & the walls are graced with Hettie's carefully curated artworks. There are plenty of opportunities to find Christmas gifts for loved ones here with pieces to cherish for life. Bee has designed a bespoke 3 seater sofa covered in quality Belgian linen, available in a selection of elegant neutrals. She also created a range of neutral wall paints from Cotswold Cottage to Penny Black - samples are available in the shop.

Bee is known for her love of candles and scents for the home. She has created her own house-scent called Mysa with notes of Mandarin, Neroli, Jasmine, Cedarwood & Vanilla. The Mysa range includes luxury candle, room spray and diffuser and they can be found on display in the store. The Mysa scent feels both feminine and masculine and fills the air without being overpowering. When I left the shop, the delicious scent left with me!
Osborn Interiors Mysa diffuser, £55 • Osborn Interiors Mysa Candle, £45
Art Untamed's collection of art works are peppered around the pop-up space and wide areas of the shop. And it's a feast for the eyes! Some of the artworks have been exclusively commissioned by Art Untamed and are one-offs you won't find anywhere else. Lucy Kent, Sally Mckay, and Becky Allen are amongst the female-strong team of artists on display here.
Typically, the works range from £150 to £1000 + with the aim to make art more accessible and affordable for a new generation of art admirers and collectors. Explore the works on show below and discover the artists behind the canvas here.
